Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of information you receive in connection with the Device.
Description and Use of Services
The Services are meant to be used in conjunction with the Device and Software. The Services are intended to record the following health-related parameters of the animal wearing the Device: (i) heart rate, (ii) respiration, (iii) body temperature, (iv) movement, and (v) position (the “Measurable Parameters”). Petpace then analyses and stores this information and perform historical data analysis. It being clarified, however, that the use of the Services is intended for informational purposes only. PETPACE IS NOT ENGAGED IN PROVIDING NOR DOES PETPACE PURPORT TO PROVIDE OR REPLACE PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS, ADVICE, TREATMENT, OR CLINICAL RECOMMENDATIONS.
You acknowledge that PetPace is not a licensed health care provider and that the use of the Services is not a substitute for independent medical decision making by a qualified veterinary physician. You are solely responsible for your own conduct with respect to your pet’s medical needs and any reliance upon the Device or the Software shall not diminish your responsibility to consult with licensed practitioners for any diagnoses, treatments, monitoring and other health-related needs.
Veterinary physicians and other healthcare professionals who use the Services should exercise independent clinical judgment as to the information they provide, and not rely on the Services or information derived therefrom as a conclusive source for diagnosis. Consumers who use the Services do so at their own risk. If your pet has any type of medical condition, you are specifically cautioned to seek professional medical advice for it.
If you want to access or use the Services, you will be required to register for a PetPace account (an “Account”). By registering, you agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information, and to keep your Account up to date at all times, including your billing information. Information received from you, including through the Services, will be kept and maintained by PetPace as described in the License. You must ensure that the e-mail address and/or phone number that you provide as part of the registration process is, and remains, valid and monitored by you.
When registering, you will be asked to provide a username and password. Please do not choose a login name that is indecent or offensive, or otherwise violates the Terms or any applicable laws or regulations. PetPace reserves the right to reclaim any username that does not comply with these Terms.
Additionally, upon registration you will be required to input a unique identifying code of your veterinary physician (the “Vet ID”) who will have access to the data collected and analyzed by Petpace through the Device and Software as part of the Services. You may not register for the Services without providing the Vet ID. You may update the Vet ID at any time but will only be able to have one Vet ID associated with your account at any given time.
You are responsible for safeguarding your username and password that you use to access your Account and you undertake not to disclose it to any third party. You hereby assume responsibility for all actions taken under your Account by you or any third parties. You will notify PetPace immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account.
The Services will only work if the Device’s battery is charged, the Device is properly fastened to the animal, and the Device comes in contact with the gateway multiple times per day. The Services monitor the Measurable Parameters over time analyzing the data and searching for irregularities. Due to the intermittent monitoring and uploading of the Measurable Parameters, the Services may not be relied upon for receiving alerts in case of emergencies.
